Wates - Derby Market Hall

Project Details


Johns were appointed by Wates Construction to carry out the decorative works at Derby Market Hall. The Hall was originally built in 1864 acting as a range of independent traders, with its wide variety of stalls encompassing niche food and drink offerings as well as local fashion retailers.

Works -

Wates instructed Johns to remove sections of lead-based paint prior to application of the paint systems to both steel and timber substrates. We used Peelaway which enabled us to contain the lead and dispose of the substance safely. Johns decorated the existing timber soffits and the perforated steel beams picking out the crests and decorative elements. The works were carried out from a fixed scaffold which included 62 miles worth of scaffold tubes! The project has spanned a duration of over 2 years and was completed on time and within Wates program. Phase 2 works will carry on next which is all the stalls/market elements.
